  1. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Here's the story Ok, so I started obvious IBS symptoms in November of 2016. Though my normal bowel movements before it all were on the looser, and more frequent side, probably partly because I've been a runner most of my life. But I was getting ones that stuck to the bowl in April that year. I...
  2. Abdominal Pain
    Hi, I'm a 67 year old C5/6 quadriplegic as a result of an accident in 72. I never had abdominal pain until about 15 years ago. I have no idea what caused the change but I began having huge pain in my right lower abdomen. It felt like someone had a broom handle jammed in there and was applying...

    Hello! For the past couples of years, I've been having bouts of severe cramping (almost to the point of passing out due to the pain) with diarrhea, which started happening after what I believe to be an episode of food poisoning from chicken. At the end of last year and the beginning of this...
  4. Abdominal Pain
    I was diagnosed with IBS in 2012 (mostly IBS-D) but after changing my diet, I have been able to control the symptoms for the most part, and do not have a lot of issues with it, other than the occasional bout after greasy/fatty foods or alcohol and some bloating. I am very lucky compared to many...

  7. General Discussion
    I have been suffering from something for at least 25 years. My general doctor does not know what it is. Interestingly enough, the doctor who did my recent colonoscopy has the exact same thing that I have. She doesn't know what it is either, but she said the last time she had the 'attack' she...
  8. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi, My Dr recently diagnosed me with ibs, caused by stress because of the on going constipation issues I've been having. I recently did a salt water enema and I felt a thousand times better. I was having regular bm's size and color, the cramping and bloating was gone, and I felt like myself...

    Hi all, Just wondering how you all manage your ibs pain? I've tried paracetamol, buscopan, breathing, meditation and hot water bottles. So far, only the hot water bottle seems to provide any relief, but it has left my skin really badly scarred from the heat, and you cant exactly take it with...

    Yesterday was probably the most embarrassing day I've ever experience to do with my IBS I've have so far. I had just been on a school trip to Berlin for 4 days and my IBS had been relatively manageable and ok until the flight back... I was with about 46 pupils in my year and 6 teachers, just...

Over the last few years my stomach issues have been up and down, weeks of normal, weeks of being constipated, weeks of diarrhoea. I always just dealt with...

  16. Your Story
    It all started like this: three months ago I was diagnosed with a colon infection. At the same time, I was diagnosed with a staph infection. I was given flagyl for the colon infection and later when the results came in for the staph infection, I was given cipro. The flagyl was bad enough for me...

    Hello, I am a female in my early 30's and had my gallbladder taken out about 3 years ago. I never had an issue with food after I had my gallbladder taken out until recently. I just started getting worse cramping and diarrhea symptoms. It really started last year with mainly the severe...

  20. General Discussion
    I'm new to the site, and have been dealing with what you could call "mystery IBS" for over two years now. I am becoming so depressed and lost over this situation that I do not know what to do with myself anymore. If anyone has any suggestions on diagnoses, or advice in general I would...
